Edinburgh Comedy Previews - Andrew Lawrence + Matt Richardson

Andrew Lawrence: A Work in Progress

The double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated stand-up and subject of 2016 SKY Arts documentary- ‘The Outcast Comic’ pokes fun at Liberal pretensions and the horrors of parenthood in this unapologetically non-PC new stand-up show. As seen on ‘Live At The Apollo’.
‘A natural-born contrarian.’ - The Telegraph
‘It’s fearless. It’s funny. It’s full of really good jokes.’  - Broadway Baby
‘Brilliant practitioner of his craft, who knows just where to place words for effect, who makes his audience warm to him, and who raises many a laugh.’ Scotsgay
‘Andrew Lawrence is superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour.’- The Spectator

Matt Richardson - Slash

 Matt Richardson has done some strange things recently. Most comedians hope to win accolades and make people laugh, very few end up with Heat magazine's Weird Crush trophy. From interviewing millionaire dogs in LA, to having his phone nicked by Kate Moss – it's been an odd, but fun, few years. Now Matt can finally tell people all about it in his unfiltered, 'hilarious and charming' (Mirror) way. Oversharing honesty and a dose of 'high wattage charisma' (Guardian) from the host of Virgin Radio's drive-time show. Having taken his first Edinburgh show on a 54 date tour, Matt is previewing his second hour long show, Slash, before heading up to Edinburgh in August.
Matt began doing stand up in November 2009 aged 18. He appeared in the finals of So You Think You're Funny and the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year in 2010. Since then Matt has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young performers and presenters. His TV credits include co-hosting the Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack, Co-Hosting Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live! Alongside Christine Lampard and helming the live spin off show alone, two one-off documentaries for ITV2 – Pampered Pooches, Hollywood and Meet The Family Guys, a series regular role on Viral Tap (ITV2), Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Sweat The Small Stuff, Big Brothers Bit on the Side, Fake Reaction, Its Not Me It’s You, I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of here Now! and countless other shows.
